As of now, I'm on my son's old Roadmaster. I had a back problem and my doctor told me not to run for a while, but I can bike. If this becomes a habit, I'll upgrade my ride and make an attempt at becoming an official cyclist.
Back in '94, I started jogging just to lose weight and with the encouragement of my daughter (11 at the time) I ended up being a bonafide long distance runner. It's been my sport of choice ever since.
Now, with this back thing, a shift of focus may be in order. At this time I usually do 2-3 rides a week of 14 miles which takes between 57 minutes to 1:03. My Saturday long ride is up to 35 miles and it took 2:29. I'm really enjoying it
